At Swansea College, we believe that diversity enriches our community, and we encourage all
international students to apply. We look forward to welcoming you to our campus and helping you
achieve your dreams.
The admission stage is imperative and therefore, I would like to advise you to take the time to review your application and personal statement to ensure that they are free of errors and convey your qualifications, experiences, and aspirations effectively.
I recommend that you proofread your application carefully and ask a friend or family member to
review it as well. Additionally, make sure that your personal statement is well-written, concise, and
relevant to your chosen subjects.
Remember, your application is your chance to showcase your potential and secure a place with us.
So, take the time to apply when you’re ready and check through your application and personal
statement to increase your chances of success.

Application Process

Programmes for international pupils International pupils who have completed the admissions
process/application and have the required level of English will join their relevant year group and
study Pre GCSE, GCSE, Pre A level or A Level programmes.
Our Pre GCSE preparation programme allows international pupils to take ESOL (English for Speakers

of Other Languages) lessons in order for them to meet the linguistic and academic requirements of a

GCSE course as an alternative to the GCSE English course. Pupils would then take the IELTS
examination at the end of Year 11. The number of ESOL lessons undertaken per week will depend on
the student’s existing English language level, their admissions assessment and Year group.
In Years 12 & 13, international students can follow our IELTS (International English Language Testing
System) programme, which universities and other institutions regard as an equivalent to a GCSE or

GCE A-Level/AS-Level in English Language or English Language & Literature.

There are also EAP (English for Academic Purposes) courses available which can further prepare
students for the language and communication skills necessary for successful academic study at
university level.
